Welcome from Producing Artistic Director Terri Kent
Dear Porthouse family and friends,
“There’s a place for us” . . .and it’s Porthouse Theatre! In a time when diversity, equity and inclusivity are front and center, know that all are welcome here.
It is with tremendous joy that I announce the 2022 season. It took me 2 years to fulfill this promise, but we will be opening with Little Shop of Horrors and closing with West Side Story. I will be directing both with Martín Céspedes as my collaborator and choreographer. Jen Korecki will music direct Little Shop of Horrors and Jonathan Swoboda will join the team as music director for West Side Story. We’re sliding a slice of heaven into the middle slot with Godspell, directed and choreographed by Dylan Ratell and with music direction by Alexandre Marr.
Some of your favorite actors, designers, staff, and crew members will be joining us for this spectacular season! Although nothing will ever be quite the same as pre-pandemic theatre – it just might be even better. We are all thrilled to return to the excitement of full houses and outstanding productions worthy of standing ovations. Most of all, we are delighted to welcome all of you home. Although last year was a success, we missed having all our family back together and under one roof.
I encourage you to give the gift of live theatre to friends and family members by purchasing Porthouse gift subscriptions to celebrate the Holidays and the New Year. Subscription renewal information will be sent soon.
Always remember . . . there’s a place for us . . . and it’s Porthouse Theatre. I’m saving you a seat as well as a special place in my heart!
With love and joy,
Producing Artistic Director
